Venetian engraver Teodoro Viero created these prints for a large-scale folio of 360 plates, his Collection of ... prints depicting figures and costumes of various nations, according to the originals, and the descriptions of the most famous recent travellers, and of the discoverers of new countries. Viero based these three prints on illustrations from recently published accounts of James Cook’s Pacific voyages.
